Description

Haystacks by Automation
Monroe, Wisconsin: "Louis Waelti of Monroe makes instant haystacks with a machine that reduces haying to a one-man operation. Cut hay is blown into a wagon and compressed into layers by a hydraulically-operated top section. Cut hay is blown into a wagon and compressed into layers by a hydraulically-operated top section. When the wagon is full, a haystack equal to approximately 115 bales of hay is ejected. By the end of the season, Waelti hopes to have about 150 stacks for the 100 cows he keeps on his farm. He said the livestock will eat directly from the stacks...with an electric fence around each stack to prevent the livestock trampling the feed in a rush."
